Ronald George Agypt

Events

Ronald George Agypt, 62, Born in Johnstown, PA on June 3,1956 to George Abraham Agypt and Mary Jane (Abraham) Agypt (both deceased), passed away on April 10th, 2019, at his home in Alpharetta, GA after a valiantly fought battle against cancer. He is survived by his wife, Kim, and their three sons, Christian and his wife Rachel, grandchildren Simon and Adalia, Brett and his wife Sara Jane, grandchildren Miles, Amelia, and Evelyn, and Tyler and his girlfriend Melanie; his nieces, Dominique and Marissa; his siblings, Greg Agypt and Janice Agypt, both of Johnstown; and his faithful dogs, Cooper, Rooney, and Riley.

Married to Kim for 38 years, his love for her was unequaled to any of his passions and achievements. He considered himself the luckiest man on earth.

A member of St. Mary Antiochian Orthodox Christian Church and a graduate of Westmont High School in 1974, Ron attended the University of Pittsburgh before embarking on a 38-year career in the insurance industry. Ron spent 33 years with Combined Insurance Company of America and AON Worksite Solutions, starting as a door-to-door salesman and working to become the youngest vice president in the company's history at age 30. He went on to serve as the Senior VP of Aflac for Broker Development and the Chief Sales Officer of HUB International. He also served on the Board of Directors for Sterling Life Insurance Company, Legal Club of America, Better Business Bureau of Northern Illinois, and Life Raft. Yet if you asked him his greatest accomplishments, he would first bring up the countless Little League titles he won coaching his sons, or his undefeated record in the "Ring of Honor."

Ron developed a legacy of love. He lived as we all should, striving to forge an easier path for those who walk behind us. He graciously left us with the understanding that our lives are measured not by what we achieve, but by the number of people we welcome into our hearts. He will be missed, but his lessons continue to grow and multiply in an ever-widening circle of joy, love, and light.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, April 27th, 2019 in Alpharetta, GA. Details can be found at https://www.caringbridge.org/visit/ronagypt.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to be made in Ron's honor to the Harlem Heights Charter School in Fort Myers, FL or the Life Raft Group.

I am so sad to hear of his passing. Growing up in Westmont, our families were neighbors, and we had a lot of great times and interactions. His Mom, Mary Jane, was almost a second Mom to us. Ronnie was a good guy and he certainly led a wonderful life. My sincerest condolences to his family.

So very sorry to hear about Ronnie’s passing. The Agypt family lived just a few homes away from our mother’s home. What a great family! One summer Ronnie’s mother, Mary Jane, asked me to babysit the kids during the days she worked. We have fond memories during that particular summer. Loved each and every one of them. My sympathy goes out to those he left behind. He will surely be missed.

I am sorry to hear about the passing of Ronnie. My sincere condolences to his entire family. I grew up 2 doors from the Agypt family in Westmont. A truly nice family and Ronnie was always a great guy. I fondly remember all the basketball games we played in his driveway and the kindness of his parents. It is no surprise to me to read that he coached his sons in baseball. Ronnie always loved sports and his family. He will be missed.
